    Heroes of the Storm Patch Notes — December 14, 2016

    Blizzard Entertainment 12/14/2016

    We just released a new patch for Heroes of the Storm, which brings our Winter Veil event, a new Hero, ranked play changes, balance updates, and more to the Nexus! Check out today’s patch notes below.

    General

    Ranked Season 3 Updates

    • Party Sizes in Ranked Play
      • The following party size adjustments for Hero and Team League have been made as a one-season experiment for Ranked Season 3.
      • Hero League
        • Players can no longer queue for Hero League games in parties.
      • Team League
        • 2, 3, and 5-player parties can now queue for Team League.
        • 2 and 3-player parties can only queue for Team League if all members are ranked within one league of one another.
        • 5-player parties can queue with any mixture of league rankings.
        • While players will need to have access to at least 14 Heroes in order to play Team League, there are still no minimum Hero level requirements in order to queue for Team League matches.
        • Team League will still utilize First Come, First Serve (FCFS) during Draft Mode, which means that parties of two and three players will need to coordinate effectively when drafting their Heroes.
        • Silenced players can no longer queue for Team League for the duration of their Silence Penalty.
    • Season 2 Rewards
      • Those who finished their placement matches during Ranked Season 2 will receive their rewards upon logging in after downloading today’s patch.
    • Matchmaking
      • The matchmaking system’s certainty level in all players’ skill ratings has once again been loosened in order to help ease movement up or down through the rankings.
    • Ranked League Adjustments
      • Silver and Gold league population sizes have been adjusted, and will now each contain a similar number of players.
      • Diamond league will now contain about half as many players as the previous season.

    New Hero: Ragnaros

    As the lord of Azeroth’s fire elementals, Ragnaros desires nothing more than to burn the world to ash. Banished to the Firelands eons ago, the Firelord now turns his rage toward the Nexus, intent on incinerating everything and everyone within it.

    Trait

    • Molten Core (D)
      • Channel on an Allied or destroyed Fort or Keep to replace it with Ragnaros’ Ultimate Form, temporarily gaining new Abilities, and a significant amount of Health that burns away over 18 seconds.
      • Ragnaros returns to his normal form upon losing all Health during Molten Core.

    Basic Abilities

    • Empower Sulfuras (Q)
      • Ragnaros’ next Basic Attack is instant, dealing Ability Damage in an area around the target, and Healing Ragnaros for 20% of the damage dealt. Healing is doubled for damage dealt to Heroes.
    • Living Meteor (W)
      • Summon a meteor at the target point that deals damage on impact, and then rolls in the target direction and deals additional damage every second for 1.75 seconds.
    • Blast Wave (E)
      • Ignite Ragnaros or target Ally, granting 25% bonus Movement Speed for 1.5 seconds before exploding, dealing damage to nearby enemies.

    Molten Core Form Abilities

    • Molten Swing (Q)
      • Swing Sulfuras in a wide arc, dealing damage and stunning enemies for 1 second. Damage increased by 25% versus Minions and Mercenaries.
    • Meteor Shower (W)
      • Summon 3 meteors at the target point that fall in the target direction. Each meteor deals damage and slows enemies by 25% for 2 seconds. Damage increased by 25% versus Minions and Mercenaries.
    • Explosive Rune (E)
      • Create a rune that explodes after 1.5 seconds, dealing damage to non-Structure enemies in a circular area. Damage increased by 25% versus Minions and Mercenaries.

    Heroic Abilities

    • Sulfuras Smash (R)
      • Hurl Sulfuras at the target area, landing after 0.75 seconds and dealing damage to enemies hit. Enemies caught in the center of the impact area take triple damage and are Stunned for 0.5 seconds.
    • Lava Wave (R)
      • Release a wave of lava from the allied Core that travels down the target lane, dealing massive damage every second to non-Structure enemies and instantly killing enemy Minions in its path. Damage doubled versus enemy Heroes.

    Battleground Rework: Haunted Mines

    After driving the Raven Lord out of the Haunted Mines and doing a little. . . redecorating. . . the Grave Keeper has re-opened the Mines to all who wish to summon powerful and destructive Grave Golems.

    Haunted Mines Basics

    • Venture Underground
      • The Haunted Mines will periodically open with an Undead Army underneath.
    • Collect the Skulls
      • Destroy the Undead and collect their Skulls to summon a powerful Golem. The more Skulls each team collects, the stronger their Golems become.
    • Unleash the Golems
      • After the Undead have been defeated, a Golem will rise for each team and travel down lane in search of Structures to destroy.

    Haunted Mines Updates

    • Grave Golems now spawn in fixed positions in each lane, and switch lanes each time they are summoned.
    • The layout of the Underground Mines has been reworked, and the Neutral Grave Golem can now be found at its center.
    • The upper level’s center area has been reworked.
      • Additional Mine Entrances have been placed to the East and West of the Battleground’s center area, for a total of 4.
      • A Mercenary Camp has been placed near each Mine Entrance, featuring Siege Giants at the East and West Entrances, and Sappers in the North and South.

    User Interface

    General

    • The search terms "melee" and "ranged" can now be used to filter Hero Select for melee or ranged Heroes.
    • Click the Grand Master Leaderboards and Ranked Play Guide buttons on the Ranked Play screen to view these pages within the Heroes of the Storm game client.

    Hero and Role Chat Links

    • Press SHIFT and click a Hero portrait or Hero Role icon during Hero Select or in a Draft Lobby to add a link to that Hero or Role in the chat.
      • Clicking a Hero or Role link in chat will automatically filter players’ Hero lists accordingly.
      • Alternatively, type a Hero name or Role in square brackets to create chat links.
        • For example: Typing “[Jaina]” into the chat box will create a link to Jaina in Hero Select. However, the spelling must be exact or the link will not work.
      • These Hero and Role links can be used to suggest picks and bans in Draft Lobbies.
      • Clicking a Hero or Role chat link while viewing the Shop will also filter the list of items accordingly.

    Penalties for Leaving Games

    • Much like Hero League, players who repeatedly leave Unranked Draft and Team League games or draft lobbies will now be flagged to receive leaver penalties.
    • Players with active penalties for leaving games can no longer queue for Unranked Draft or Team League games.

    MVP and Commendations

    • Press TAB at any point during the MVP and Commendations sequence to view the in-game Score Screen for that match.
    • A Skip button has replaced the Exit button on the MVP screen.
      • Clicking Skip will immediately take the player to the Commendations screen.
      • Players can still leave the Commendations screen normally by pressing the Exit button.

    Design & Gameplay

    Unrevealable Heroes

    • Heroes who are considered unrevealable will no longer shimmer like other stealthed heroes.
    • After the unrevealable period ends, they will shimmer again.

    Battlegrounds

    Heroes Brawl - Blackheart's Revenge, Garden Arena, Punisher Arena, Temple Arena

    • Healing Fountains
      • Healing Fountains will now be Invulnerable when these Brawls next return to the Nexus

    Braxis Holdout

    • Zerg Rush
      • Initial Zergling spawn increased from 3 to 6 Zerglings

    Warhead Junction

    • Warheads
      • Base damage reduced from 2750 to 2300.
      • Warhead damage now scales by a flat 70 every minute, and no longer has a large jump at 18 minutes.
      • Inner Warhead damage is still a 50% bonus.
    Developer Comments:  We didn’t like the gameplay of holding off on using a Warhead for a sudden unintuitive damage spike, so we’ve smoothed out their damage curve over a longer period. This should end up playing mostly the same across the game, with only about 10% differences in damage at various points in the match.

    Heroes

    ASSASSIN SUPPORT WARRIOR
    Chromie Auriel Artanis
    Kael'thas Rehgar Dehaka
        Diablo
        Zarya

    Assassin

    Chromie

    Divider_Hero_Chromie_Crop.png

    Abilities

    • Timewalker (Trait)
      • Increased the level reduction for getting Talents from 1 to 2 levels

    Talents

    • Level 1
      • Timewalker’s Pursuit (Active)
        • Added Functionality:
          • You can now also activate this Talent to reveal an area for 2 seconds.  Enemies seen are revealed for 4 seconds.
      • Peer Into the Future (Active)
        • Removed
    Developer Comments:  We’re looking to add more power to Chromie that fits the flavor of the character, without increasing her burst potential across the entirety of the game. We’re also combining the effects of Timewalker’s Pursuit and Peer Into the Future to create an enticing option at Level 1.

        

    Kael'thas

    Divider_Heroes_Kaelthas_Cropped.png

    Abilities

    • Pyroblast (R)
      • Cast time reduced from 2 to 1.5 seconds
      • Cast range increased by roughly 30%
    Developer Comments:  Pyroblast has been underperforming compared to Phoenix. We like where its damage is at, and that a lot of Heroes have ways to negate or mitigate it. Instead, we’re buffing the consistency of the Heroic to make it more competitive.

        

    Support

    Auriel

    Divider_Hero_Auriel_Crop.png

    Abilities

    • Bestow Hope (Trait)
      • Crown visual effects can now be seen by Allies

     

    Rehgar

    Divider_Hero_Rehgar_Crop.png

    Stats

    • Increased Basic Attack damage from 99 to 120 

    Abilities

    • Lightning Shield (W)
      • Increased damage from 64 to 70 per second
    • Bloodlust (R)
      • Added functionality:
        • All affected allies now heal for 30% of Basic Attack damage dealt during Bloodlust

    Talents

    • Level 4
      • Stormcaller (W)
        • Now returns Mana from hitting all enemies, not just Heroes
    • Level 7
      • Totemic Projection (E)
        • Added Functionality:
          • Now also increases the duration of Earthbind Totem from 8 to 12 seconds
    • Level 20
      • Farseer's Blessing (R)
        • Secondary healing effect increased from 25% to 50% of Ancestral Healing’s full amount
      • Gladiator's War Shout (R)
        • Now increases Bloodlust healing from 30% to 60% of Basic Attack damage
    Developer Comments:  It’s been a while since Rehgar was a major dominant force, and his performance is now low enough that we can safely increase the rewards for his aggressive playstyle without pushing his winrate too high. For Bloodlust, we wanted to reduce the loss of healing for picking the Heroic, but only for Basic Attack teams that really benefit from it.

    Warrior

    Artanis

    Divider_Hero_Artanis_crop.png

    Abilities

    • Blade Dash (Q)
      • Added functionality:
        • Now reduces the cooldown of Shield Overload by 1 second per enemy hit, and 2 seconds per Hero hit.​
    • Twin Blades (W)
      • Charge range is now checked against the edge of target units, instead of their center. This increases the effective range of Twin Blades and should generally create more consistent behavior.
    • Phase Prism (E)
      • ​Added functionality:
        • You can now cast Phase Prism during Blade Dash
      • Cooldown increased from 14 to 16 seconds
    • Shield Overload (Trait)​
      • Cooldown increased from 20 to 24 seconds
      • Activation threshold increased from 50 to 75% Health
      • Shield value reduced from 449 to 360 

    Talents

    • Level 4​
      • Shield Surge (Trait)
        • Moved from Level 16
        • New functionality:
          • Shield Overload's shield amount is increased by 80% while you are below 25% Health
      • Lethal Alacrity (Q)
        • Removed
      • Shield Battery (Trait)
        • Redesigned:
          • Shield Overload's cooldown recharges 50% faster while its shield is active, and increases the duration of Shield Overload from 5 to 6 seconds
      • Psionic Synergy (Q)
        • Moved from Level 7
        • Now increases the cooldown reduction of hitting Heroes with Blade Dash from 2 to 4 seconds
    • Level 7
      • Chrono Surge (E)
        • Moved from Level 4
        • Attack Speed bonus increased from 40 to 50%
    • Level 13​
      • Templar's Zeal (Q)
        • Moved from Level 4
      • Phase Bulwark (Trait)
        • Ability damage mitigation reduced from 50 to 40%
    • Level 16​
      • Burning Rage (Passive)
        • Moved from Level 13
        • Replaced with Plasma Burn (Trait):
          • While your Shield is active, you deal 50 damage a second to nearby enemies 
    Developer Comments:  The goals with this Artanis update were twofold: Increase his playmaking (swapping enemies during Blade Dash), and increase his solo lane capabilities (Blade Dash reduces Shield Overload cooldown, Shield Overload triggers at higher Health). We think that with these changes, Artanis will be a strong choice on a lot more Battlegrounds and with more team compositions.

      • Enhanced Agility (Trait)
        • New functionality:

      • New Talent: Essence Claws (Passive)
        • Basic Attacks slow enemies by 20% for 1 second
        • Basic Attacks against enemy Heroes grant Dehaka 5 Essence
    Developer Comments:  We started doing some small changes to Dehaka’s talent tree in order to increase diversity and fix some talent pick issues. As is par for the course, this opened a rabbit-hole of design opportunities that we ended up falling into. While Dehaka’s changes were mostly complete before the BlizzCon Finals, his resurgence as a dark horse of competitive play helped us narrow down and finalize the rework. Base movement speed on Brushstalker helps meld his design while some brand new talents should open up some fun new ways to hunt your prey.

          • Using Overpower refreshes the Cooldown of Shadow Charge
      • Imposing Presence (Passive)
        • Removed
      • New Talent: Fearful Presence (Passive/Active)
        • Passive: Heroes and Summons that attack Diablo have their Attack Speed slowed by 20% for 2.5 seconds
        • Active: Activate to reduce the damage dealt by nearby Heroes by 30% for 3 seconds
    • Level 20
      • Bolt of the Storm (Active)
        • Removed
      • New Talent: Hellgate (Active)
        • Activate to teleport a short distance and place a Demonic Rune at that location. After 1.75 seconds the rune explodes dealing 137 damage and stuns enemies for 1.75 seconds
    Developer Comments:  The Lord of Terror has been under the knife for a couple months and has finally collected enough souls to resurrect himself. He reenters the Nexus with an updated talent tree focusing on maintaining and amplifying his identity. He should still excel as a gank-oriented Warrior, punishing out-of-position enemies, but also brings along some new survivability options. While we had to lower his damage slightly, the baseline addition of Firestorm and larger payoff for Shadow Charging enemies into collision should heavily reward opportunistic Diablo players.

    Abilities

      • This ability has received improvements to its cast animation
      • The time between casting Particle Grenade and performing another action has been reduced by .25 seconds
    Developer Comments:  Casting Zarya’s Particle Grenade would force her to be locked in place for a short period of time. We don’t do this on other Heroes, and we felt like this exception broke the fluidity of the character.

    Cosa ne pensate di Ragnaros? Io provandolo l'ho trovato decisamente forte.
    La ulti del martello se usato bene il suo sporco lavoro lo fa, ma quella della lava.....è sgrava a dir poco; Ovvero, lo sono i danni se becca gli eroi nemici. E' vero che è evitabilissima, ma secondo me quello che la rende forte è il fatto che se la usi nel bel mezzo del tf quando avviente il casino dove nessuno guarda la mappa, con il giusto tempismo si guadagna un vantaggio enorme killando i nemici.
    Inoltre a mio parere la build di Ragnaros sulla Q è decisamente troppo forte; non tanto per i danni, ma per le cure fornite. Col talento che aumenta l'healing della Q in base ai danni inflitti (+ il talento all'1 per i danni aggiuntivi), si cura di un macello, e questo senza considerare anche le altre "fonti" di sopravvivenza che lo rende non semplice da uccidere per essere un assassin.
    E per finire, non capisco come mai con una semplice E del molten core shotto gli hero come niente rispetto alle altre 2 skill (Q e W) a distanza kilometrica.
    Attualmente Ragnaros ha una win rate del 63%, quindi prevedo un nerf tra non molto :D

    @TheDarkLord Giusto tutto quello che hai detto, ma imo è troppo presto per ipotizzare un nerf. Al momento, secondo i top player NA la build più sgrava è quella sulla E piuttosto che quella sulla Q. Dipende tutto dallo stile di gioco che si vuole adottare e dalla mappa. La lava wave è op, bisogna sempre tenere un occhio sulla mini mappa, adesso più che mai.
    Secondo me non ci sono assolutamente elementi a sufficienza per gridare al nerf. Abbastanza inutili anche le statistiche (% win rate, % ban), chiaramente inflazionate a due giorni dal rilascio. La situazione è sempre la stessa: chi non lo sa usare feedda a più non posso ( e dunque pare facilmente counterabile), chi lo sa usare rekta gli altri che non ci sanno, ancora, giocare attorno. È decisamente troppo presto ;)

    Sono d'accordo con figlio @Vylneron , sebbene i danni, soprattutto di un paio di abilità siano alti assai, possibili aggiustamenti pure secondo me,ma è meno broken di come era Samuro o Li Ming all'uscita, senza dubbio 1

    @Ruben Secondo me il tratto è bilanciato, poi magari mi sbaglio. Il problema imo è il danno dell'eroica e la sua utilità di far spostare o disingaggiare il team nemico come dice @TheDarkLord e oltre a questo la resistenza dell'eroe stesso che è un melee/non melee in quanto ha a due spell che casta a distanza e una da mischia che lo cura pure. In pratica non muori mai.

    @Magnus E conta anche che la ulti della lava ti fa guadagnare tutta l'exp della linea che vai a pulire, pur non essendoci vicino ai minion per niente, e questo la rende ancora più op. Che senso ha avere in squadra dei vikings se solamente la ulti di un eroe fa almeno la metà del loro lavoro + altro? :D rofl 0

    Spe @Magnus non ho detto che non è da nerf, anzi se chiedi a Vylneron ti confermerà che l'ho detto subito che lo ritoccano in qualche modo :D Dico che Samuro, Li Ming, Xul, alla release erano nettamente più forti, e Diablo ora è il più forte hero a saperlo giocare, altra correzione in arrivo imho 2
